Today’s world is one of constant change, instability and disruption. Wherever you look, existing companies in existing industries are seeing their leadership challenged by a range of disruptive upstarts. From Uber to Airbnb, from Fanduel to Waze, new companies are ignoring conventional rules and outmaneuvering corporate giants. What if there was a formula for how these companies cause disruption? What if causing “Jerk” was knowable, and you could apply it to your business, too?

Mr. Surdak will discuss these points from his new book, Jerk: Twelve Steps to Rule the World, as well as his views on today’s Big Data landscape, and more on August 3. He is an industry-recognized expert in mobility, social media and analytics, Big Data, information security, regulatory compliance, and Cloud computing with over 20 years of experience in leadership roles at Accenture, Siemens, Dell and Citibank.
